Be the Change Gala 2017 Olive crest

Thanks to everyone who attended Olive Crest’s Be the Change Annual Gala at the Red Rock Hotel, Casino & Spa. Our Project Independence youth who have aged out of the foster care system were our stars of the evening as they mingled with donors and had the opportunity to personally thank them for their support. Because of you, we raised over $150,000 to continue to help at-risk children and families in Nevada.

Mark Wiley, Board of Trustee President, and Laura Armeni-Kneesel, Director of Development of Olive Crest in Nevada.

Attendees enjoyed the evening’s program emceed by Steph Mackenzie from 97.1 The Point and David Hall from Fox 5 KVVU-TV, auctioneer Mike Kinney, and with entertainment by Kiara Brown. Olive Crest is blessed to have the generous support of our community partners and all those in attendance, and we truly could not exist without the leadership of our Board of Trustees.
